Tofu Masala

1 pound fresh (not frozen) tofu (firm), cut the solid block of tofu into 1/2" slabs. Pan sear the tofu (with a bit of oil) until toasted. Cut the toasted tofu into bite size bits.

Saute the following in a pan...

  • 1 TBL nice oil, like olive / sesame / coconut.

  • 1 tsp cumin seeds (crushed first).

  • 2 big onions finely chopped.

  • 1 TBL garam masala.

  • 2 green chilies, minced (mild or hot, your choice).

  • 2 TBL ginger, minced.

  • 1 tsp paprika.

  • 1 TBL coriander powder.

  • 1/4 cup yogurt, plain.

  • Add water as needed to make a sauce.

When the onions are translucent, add the tofu bits and cook some more. Salt to taste (or use Bragg Liquid Aminos). Garnish with fresh cilantro & mint leaves.
